I like Sony's products, and I think they're just embarrassing themselves with all this bullshit. Sony need to grow a pair and drop this lawsuit, right now. The further they take it the more ridiculous it's getting.

Know which company I love when it comes to consoles? Nintendo. Not because their consoles are necessarily amazing, but because of the attitude the company has towards hackers. The Wii has been hacked for some time now. This started with modchips and now goes through firmware exploits. Did Nintendo start a lawsuit? No. Nintendo patched the hole in the next firmware, which wasn't rushed for the sake of patching the exploit. If Sony were to treat their customers the same way, they would be much more popular in the eyes of the consumer. That's my two cents worth. Take it how you will.

Well when a company knows how to fix the holes that were exploited and don't feel too embarrassed about it they are usually more lighthearted about it. It's when the pride is affected where tempers seem to rage. I love to see when a company can joke about a hack that has affected them rather than them trying to get revenge or going on a rant about it. This kind of attitude and outlook is why facebook is where it is at today and why myspace is down the tubes for good. If Sony would have this approach I would have a more favorable view of them as well, but as it stands I will not be buying into any more sony products for the foreseeable future.

Sony sucks. bottom line. They have terrible customer support, mediocre products and now they are just bullies. Sony can suck it. I cut them off after my PS3 died after 12 months and 4 days of use. that 4 days made them say " you must pay 150.00$ for us to fix your bluray drive. Either pay the 150.00$ or buy a new PS3"

So i ebay'd mine and bought a samsung BRP and continued to play my games on xbox.

geo, keep your head up mate and thanks for doing this for us all.

PS3 is stupid, yeah I bought it for a bluray player, but when it got damaged after only 1 year of usage, it give up on you. Jailbreaking was the only reason why I looked forward to turning on my PS3.

Hacking is a doorway to Piracry and should therefore remain private. Showing the results publicly should make you accountable. For example, its fine if I know to make a bomb out of household products. However if I show this to alot of people, who then harm someone, then some degree of responsibility should come back to me, as I am the one that provided the tools, knowledge and demonstated how to make it possible. I may not directly harm someone, but I'm indirectly responsible for the aftermath.

WillTrentU, yeah and kitchen knives can hurt someone, should we go after Bed Bath and Beyond when someone gets stabbed? We have freedom of the press here because it is believed that information should be free and no one should be punished for someone elses actions just because they got a "tool" from them. No matter if its a drink, a knife, a car or a key (digital or otherwise).

I like sony, but they are pretty stupid with the PS3.
I mean, when they first manufactured the PS3 and they would sell each unit below the manufacturing costs in most countries, they put otheros in it, and so many people would buy ps3s for otheros, without buying any games for it, and so sony wouldn't make up for the loss of those units, so it was not a very logical decision to include it.
Later with the slim, they had cut the manufacturing costs of the console so they sold each unit at a profit, so even if costumers bought it just for the otheros, they wouldn't lose money, but it was at that time that they decided to cut it out.
And now this, they are overreacting with the hackers and damaging their own reputation

You brought it on yourself. You should stop whining that a company that makes money off their hardware doesnt like that you made it so people can steal stuff. You're not that smart for someone who manages to do smart things. Quit acting like you're a victim. You're attacking them. You are completely at fault for PSN getting hacked, and you wonder why Sony doesnt like you? Grow up.

geo please dont stop fighting..

i gave my dog named SONY (>_<).. and the older puppy named NeoTechni..

admit it, sony do take profit with code-soldiers works, then when he's on top, he dont need anyone boost the console sales, he is a king and dont want to share..

grow-up NeoTechni PSN identity theft is a common fraud, even a child can do that, such as spamming and act as an admin asking for password..
thief can be found across the world.. its common..

the differences only whom the victim..
idiot who gave his identity or the smart whom protect their privacy, and not to trust anyone in random..
